Long rafting Soča

Long rafting

A fairy tale rafting expedition, exploring the secrets of Soča river.

For the long rafting, you need the same accessories as most of the rafting programs. It’s recommended to have a bathing suit, which you can wear under your clothes allready at the time you come to our office, if not, you can as well change in our restrooms. In a backpack, it’s recommended to pack a towel and some dry underwear to change. Because the longer rafting trip takes altogether around 4 hours we recommend packing a small snack and a drink that you can leave in the van for after your rafting tour. On a sunny day, we advise wearing sunscreen and because in the low season, it’s still fresh sometimes, especially in the early spring and late autumn months, we recommend bringing an additional jacket just in case of fresher weather.

We provide all the necessary rafting equipment (helmet, neoprene suit, anorak, life vest, neoprene shoes). In case of colder weather or if you tend to be more sensitive to cold, we can provide warmer, thicker wetsuits and/or jackets. On the trip professional, experienced, licenced guides are safely steering your raft. Transportation to the starting point and back to our agency in Bovec is also included, as well as the river pass. At the end of each of our trips, we gift you with free photography as a sign of gratitude that you chose us to guide you on your whitewater adventure.

In the high season, the river conditions often don’t allow paddling the long section of the river Zmuklica-Trnovo. In the summer months, the upper section has too low water levels to do the descent. Our season starts on the 15.3. when the Soca river officially opens for commercial purposes and finishes on 31.10. In low season we can sometimes be more flexible and adapt timings based on your needs. When you enquire about your reservation you can let us know your wishes and we will see if we can make a personalized schedule for you.

The long rafting tour Zmuklica – Trnovo is available in low season from 15.3. – 21.6. and 20.9 to 31.10. at:

  • 12:00.

In the low season, especially in early spring or late autumn, we can sometimes face higher water levels. If the water level is too high to safely organise the trip we might have to take the right to change your long tour to a shorter one, with an appropriate section that is safe to raft or reschedule until the water level is suitable for the long tour.

For the long rafting trip, the meeting time in our agency is 11.45. In case the agreed time is different due to other reasons and adapted schedules, we meet 15 minutes before the agreed time.

Rafting Bovec – long Route Zmuklica-Trnovo

In the spring or autumn time, in case of good water conditions, you can set also on your 3h on the river, 17km water adventure. The Zmuklica-Trnovo rafting section differs from the classic Boka-Trnovo section, especially in the length of the trip. We start the trip higher up the Soca river with the big raft (up to 8 people). The starting point of the trip is just a glimpse away from the Kal-Koritnica village, close to a 10 min drive from the office, where we descent with the raft down to Trnovo. On the whole river section, we stop for swimming, boulder jumping, for the brave we can stop even for a jump of a hanging bridge. On the long trip, we have various combinations of calmer mystical parts as well as adrenalin-filled river sections. for the entire adventure, you will spend approximately 4,5 hours.


  • The trip is performed in a case of at least 4 participants,
  • in case enquiries don’t reach up to 4, the trip is performed on the shorter, classic section Boka-Trnovo,
  • the maximum number of rafters on one boat is 8, plus the guide,
  • the minimum number is set to 4 participants due to safety reasons since the trip is performed in higher water levels.

How difficult is the long rafting?

The long rafting is considered to be of moderate difficulty among the activities and it’s recommended for guests to be healthy and in good general physical conditionAll of our trips are guided, which means a highly qualified, licensed guide guides your raft and gives directions and safety instructions. The long rafting trip is a tour that consists of the classic rafting section as well as the family rafting section, and we paddle the entire section of the river open to commercial purposes. We measure rivers with grades that reach up to class VI. The part that we do the long rafting on, extends in class I – IV and has the most challenging section which reaches class IV. The difficulty depends on the water level as well. With higher water levels we might decide to change the section due to safety reasons.

The long rafting trip is appropriate for kids from the age of 6, accompanied by adults.
